The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady recently announced that he is retiring from football after dominating the sport for more than two decades. The 15-time Pro Bowler took it to social media to announce his retirement for the second consecutive year. And now, after his retirement, it seems like Tom Brady has found his next project as he’s set to produce a TV Series about the legendary Raiders head coach John Madden.
The one-of-a-kind career of John Madden is the subject of the new TV Series named “All Madden” that will be directed by Gavin O’Connor. Furthermore, the writing work will be done by Vegas (2012) fame Alex Sohn. Along with Brady’s 199 Productions, there will be three other production companies including Religion of Sports, that will be joining hands to recreate the former Raiders HC Madden’s illustrious football career.
The 7-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady joining the crew as an executive producer has created an extra buzz for the film and importantly has pleased the family of the Raiders legend John Madden. “If Dad was still around, and he was looking for a few guys to huddle up and tell his story, he’d be thrilled to have Tom Brady leading the huddle,” said Mike Madden, who is working tirelessly on the project about his father’s legacy.
In brief, the Hall of Fame head coach John Madden is an important part of football history in America. During his time with the Oakland Raiders, he won one Super Bowl ring and never had a losing season. Furthermore, he was also a beloved Sports Broadcaster who was a staple part of American Football for many years.
